Scripture: verse 18
I will open rivers on the bare heights…
Observation: God is promising to meet His people’s needs: when the poor are without water, they will call on Him and He will create abundant water for them.
I sometimes wonder how God would change His messages for people from different cultures. I frequently get words for people about sitting in God’s sunshine, but would that change to shade or a cool breeze if I prayed for someone from Africa? I haven’t prayed for enough people from tropical climates to know, but it seems likely.
The point is that God already has abundant provision for us. All we have to do is ask.
Application: Ask for what you need.
Prayer: Father, I praise you because you put the reserves of water in the Earth, and you know where they are and you can shape them and direct them in any way you want. You can sculpt my climate to be exactly what I need. Thank you for providing for me. Help me to ask you when I need things instead of just worrying. Amen.
